Its Christmas Eve at the Krug/Bernhard household and Crystal is playing wii for the first time in months. We found a game that she can operate with only her right hand, and now she is schooling our mother in the game. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
It touches my heart every time I hear about another group helping Crystal in her fight against cancer, and this one digs even deeper because it not only helps Crystal, but is also teaching young children how to help their friends (in a fun way).
This Penny War is being organized by Crystal's teacher from Kindergarten, and we just want to thank her, the students of Brock Bridge Elementary, their family, and the other staff at Brock Bridge.
These cool and practical silicone wrist bands are another fundraiser to help raise funds for her medical treatment.
The band says "Stop and Erase... Cancer" on the front, and "Team Crystal" on the back. The slogan Stop and Erase is the name of a song by Crystal's favorite musical artist, Selena Gomez.
They make the perfect accessory to show your support for Crystal and her fight, are the perfect stocking stuffers, and help us raise awareness about this fight.
You can pick yours up at the Laughing Pint (3531 Gough Street, Baltimore, MD 21224) or if you dont live in the area you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase one. They are only $5 a piece.

We are going to be using this blogger page (that you have been re-directed to from CrystalFundraiser.org) to keep everyone updated on how Crystal is doing. If you dont know the full story of Crystal yet, here you go:
Crystal is an energetic 10 year old living in Laurel, MD. Crystal, just like you likes smiling, laughing, and having a good time. Unfortunately, Crystal was diagnosed with an inoperable brain-stem tumor. Each year only 150 people (the majority of which are young children) are diagnosed with this type of tumor.
Check back often to see pictures of Crystal, and hear how she is doing.
